DIY Studio Lighting with Common Household Items
Hack your Lighting!
Pro results, without the pro gear (or expense)
Learn from international lighting wizard Dave Montizambert, how to create incredible portrait and fashion lighting on models, clients, friends or family, in your living-room using nothing more than an inexpensive work-light and readily available repurposed house-hold items in place of lighting modifiers, stands and rigging. This video's six lighting setups are designed to expose you to the creative possibilities of lighting and to inspire you into painlessly learning the necessary lighting principles that can be applied to all lighting situations. During the six shoots, you will have an over-the-shoulder view, from many angles, of the homemade lighting setups as they unfold - you will see exactly where each piece of rigging is placed and why, plus you will see it all again in detail using Dave's patented intricate lighting diagrams and image capture progressions. All this plus a bonus lesson on main-light placement for best facial lighting.

He is also a published author having written two books on lighting and digital photography plus numerous magazine articles on these topics in North America, Europe, Russia, and Asia.
